Bill Murray, John Candy, Harold Ramis, P.J. Soles, Sean Young, John Larroquette. When John Winger loses his job, his car, his apartment and his girlfriend, all in one day, he decides he and his friend Russell only have one option: volunteer for the Army. Where else can they help save the world for democracy and meet girls! They find basic training a snap: they are arrested twice, have endless run-ins with their drill sergeant and get into a big mess at a female mud-wrestling match. They even steal a top secret government vehicle to take some gorgeous female MPs on a date, and wind up behind the Iron Curtain. 1981/color/106 min/R/widescreen.
